From Patterdale YHA via Nethermost Pike East Ridge, then Neethermost Pike, High Crag & Dollywaggon Pike. Had the East Ridge to ourselves, and it was a fun ascent from which to laugh at the queues on Striding Edge. However, getting to it via Nethermost Cove involved an unpleasant amount of steep pathless bracken-bashing - maybe Ruthwaite Cove and Hard Tarn are now a better way onto the ridge? Nethermost Pike summit is a bit of a dull barren plain, albeit one with some good lunch rocks.wheresthepath24/06/2018

It was an early start from Glenridding. I parked for £3 in the Sports field and headed up the lane, before turning left to the path up to Birks. There were still Bluebells out and the views down to Ullswater were superb as there was a thin layer of mist in the valley. It was a slog to the summit of Birks before it became easier to St Sunday Crag. Nice to have it to myself on this summit and the views were stunning. I descended to Deepdale Hause and cut around Grisedale Tarn to the steep climb to Seat Sandal. The views West were great in the soft rather misty light all the main peaks were a dark silhouette against the milky sky. I headed north and straight up the wall to the cairn at the edge of the cliffs on Dollywaggon Pike. It was then an easy walk over Nethermost Pike and on to the summit of Helvellyn where I had 5 minutes on my own. I continued along Striding Edge which was much easier than I imagined with no difficulties to the summit of High Spying How.isabelle01/06/2018
